<p>Has anyone played a defiler up to mid level and betrayed?  I have a 47 defiler and am considering betraying to mystic but I'd like to hear some pros and cons about both defiler and mystic.  does one have better strengths in a group, and what about solo?thanks for any input!</p>

<p>Mystic has the melee option, which means a much quicker soloing experience, the dps on short to medium fights is greatly increased.</p><p>For debuffs I like the defiler better because they have the AA to really increase the cast time of debuffs, so much that you can actually get your debuffs off pretty easily between heals.  Mystic does have better multi target debuffs however.</p>

<p>I am still playing my defiler while I research but most of the info is still pre-SF. I also like the debuffs alot.</p><p>Thanks for getting back to me.  I appreciate the input and I hope we get more post SF defiler info.</p>
